“…media can be yours/and you can write your own history.”
it’s foolish to think of intangibles
in these times of war
to think of balls unraveling
when we cannot define
love or peace
to think we can overlook
lo que la historia nos dice
en pencar que nacimos
en diferentes siglos
de diferente tiempos, familias
me gustaria haberte conocido
al principio, cuando tuve
noches que el aire del tiempo no ha visto

Poet and scholar Alexis Pauline Gumbs writes, this is a book for those of us who know that love is political.
